Astrid, in all her eyepatched glory, glams up the joint.
My sultry pal Miss Astrid, burlesque emcee and raconteur ("rack-onteur?") or great renown is back in town and up to new hijinx! Introduced to me a few years ago by my former colleague and burlesque promoter Katherine Valentine, Astrid's a Teutonic terror and a stone hoot, so I highly recommend whatever she's got up her sleeve. I've attended several of her events and have never had anything less than a great time, so check it out! Here's the skinny:
If you have yet to experience Ms. Valentine's at Midnight, this is the week to come...........
